Where Solitude Meets Adventure

About Us


Ocean Mist Cottages boasts one of the best beachfront locations in all of Nova Scotia with six fully equipped, two bedroom, oceanfront units that promise to meet your every expectation. The tastefully decorated interiors of our beachfront cottages create a cozy atmosphere that is bound to please. You’ll find pine cathedral ceilings and locally crafted pine furniture with all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. Garden doors open to a spacious deck overlooking Crescent Beach where you’re only a stone’s throw away from the Atlantic Ocean. Each of our cottages has a BBQ, picnic table, deck chairs and outside fire-pits.

 Interested in peaceful walks on a fine white sand beach where the only sounds you’ll hear are the rolling surf and the laughter of children? Spend your days lazing on famous Crescent Beach in Lockeport, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia or relaxing with a book on the deck of your cottage rental. This mile long white sand beach is never crowded yet provides endless hours of enjoyment for those who visit year after year… whether for an hour, a day or a week.


 The picturesque island town of Lockeport is joined to the mainland by Crescent Beach and its causeway. It is renowned for its fine white sand beaches and friendly people. With a population of around 600, the community is rarely busy except during its summer festivals -The Shelburne County Lobster Festival, Lockeport Canada Day Celebrations , Harmony Bazaar – Festival of Women and Song and the Lockeport Sea Derby.

If you’re tired of crowds, and longing for solitude with a little adventure, this is the place for you and your family. Come experience what so many others have grown to cherish….life in the slow lane.

husband and I stayed in the beautiful chalet for our anniversary. The hostswere very accommodating and the chalet was amazing. The beach is lovely and easily accessible. This was our most relaxing vacation in a very long time. Thank you for a wonderful rest.

We (family of 5) really loved our stay at Ocean Mist.

We stayed in the Crows Nest. The accommodation was over two levels and was absolutely ideal for our family. There was a large, spacious kitchen/dining/living area, a double bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and a double bed with two singles on a mezzanine level upstairs. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need and there was a BBQ on the deck outside which we enjoyed using.

The Crows Nest sits on its own behind a row of one level cottages with direct access to the beach. We loved spending time around the cottage and down on the beach; it’s a lovely party of Nova Scotia.

We also spent some time investigating Shelburne, Roseway Bay, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay all just a short drive from Lockeport.

We wouldn’t hesitate to come back here, we moved on to the north shore and wished we’d stayed there!

We loved the sound of the waves. So peaceful and refreshing. We are both from Cape Breton so it certainly reminded us of home. ❤️
